Wines, like a comfortable T-shirt or a hard candy left to ripen under the couch, only get better with age. Taste the passing of time with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of wine and drinks at Left Coast Wine Bar & Gallery in Glendale.
Left Coast offers intrepid imbibers a well-rounded wine and beer list lined with more than 130 domestic and imported wines. Glasses (starting at $7) and bottles ($12–$1,500) patchwork the lengthy list, which is easily deciphered thanks to descriptive phrasings such as earthy, vegetal, lip-smackin' good, and in-stock. For those who'd rather tap into the tap, Left Coast stocks a rotating assortment of draft beers and globetrotting bottled brews such as Czech Rebel Beer ($6.25), Australia's Cooper's Vintage Ale ($8.75), or Japan's Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale ($9.25).
The aesthetic and aural properties of Left Coast lend an easing hand to all visiting sippers. Candlelit quarters sweep guests into the cushions of modern sofas framed by cascading pieces of original fine art. The space is also soundtracked by nightly live music that demands no cover charge from the eager ears that it tickles. Though not included in this Groupon, a selection of charcuterie, sandwiches, and salads is primed and ready to quell any unexpected hunger strikes.
